PV Sindhu’s 'I Retire’ tweet created ripples on Twitter. Many jumped to the conclusion that the world badminton champion has officially retired from the sport. However, that was not the case. But before many would get Sindhu’a actual message, there was ‘babel of breaking news’ already! The Olympic silver medalist’s message was about retiring from this ‘current state of unrest’ and ‘negativity’ surrounding the coronavirus pandemic. Even the likes of home minister Amit Shah and Doordarshan Sports believed that Sindhu has called it a day before realising the gaffe. PV Sindhu is Not Retiring!
